I love my Troy Bilt snowblower it is so dependable. It has no problem starting weather it is 35 degrees or -35, it goes strong with it's 7 horsepower engine and serated auger blades. When the city snowplows pile all of the snow in front of my driveway most of the time, or by the time I get to it it's usually slushy and nasty stuff, I go to the shed and get out the snowblower and usually use the electric start (but you can use the pull start too Ha Ha) and it plows right through it. Troy bilt has a very god reputation as being well built, dependable, and reliable. I cant wait till the snow hits here in Utah, I always pray for it and it never snows enough for me because i just want to get out there and use my Troy Bilt and watch the people that drive by and stare wishing they had one. All you people out there need to get to Lowes"they are the only company that carries Troy Bilt" and get one of these.
